Sun Devils Drop Season Finale to #19 UCLA, Await Postseason Berth
PHOENIX – Sun Devil Baseball tossed one of its best outings of the Pac-12 campaign on the mound but the offense could solve the Bruins as UCLA took the series finale from ASU, 3-0, on Saturday afternoon.
The Sun Devils will now set their sights on the 2021 NCAA Postseason, beginning with the Selection Show on Monday morning at 9 a.m. AZT on ESPN2.
Jared Glenn had one of his top outings of the season, earning the start and going 5.0 innings with six strikeouts. Truly the only two blemishes on his record were a pair of solo home runs given up to UCLA's Noah Cardenas. Outside of those two long balls, Glenn allowed just three hits and no walks.
Graham Osman had a dominant inning of relief, bouncing back from a spotty appearance last night with a 1-2-3 frame on eight pitches with two strikeouts. Will Levine closed things out with 3.0 innings, allowing one run on three hits.
ASU struggled at the plate, a rare occurrence in this last month of the season in which the Devils closed the year with double digit hits in 19 of the final 28 games. The Sun Devils mustered just four hits at the dish this afternoon, including a double on Senior Day from Nick Cheema.
